Overview
The Cocker Spaniel is a beautiful, and intelligent dog that commonly makes a terrific house pet. However, this breed would be best suited in a home with older, more respectable children. This breed must be properly socialized as a pup to avoid many behavioral problems that can occur such as shyness, which can lead to aggression and submissive urination.
Character
Cocker Spaniels are intelligent and very loyal dogs. However, they do require an energetic owner, as they are very playful and active. This lively breed makes a great household pet, and should not be left outdoors for a long period of time. Their long hair prevents them from staying cool in hot weather. This breed is sure to bring plenty of joy to your life.
Temperament
Cocker Spaniels are beautiful dogs that can get along well with older children and animals providing they do not pester. A very cheerful dog, this breed loves to play and sometimes enjoys barking. This very gentle breed can become somewhat of a tyrant if not given the proper attention or socialization.
Care
This breed has a long and flat or wavy coat that requires daily brushing. This breed requires grooming on a daily basis if hair is to stay long. Eyes should be cleaned daily to remove any tear stains. Trimming is necessary. Ears must be cleaned regularly to avoid ear infections.
Coat
Most commonly seen in white, solid black, or light cream this breed has a beautiful silky coat that should either lay flat, or be slightly wavy. Clipping is necessary to keep hair at medium length.
Training
This breed can be rather difficult to housebreak, but are otherwise very easy to train. Obedience classes are recommended for this playful breed. Initially bred to be used as a gundog, this breed does exceptionally well in obedience if given consistent training with a gentle hand.
Activity
The Cocker Spaniel is recommended for a home with at least a small yard, but can do well in an apartment if they receive the proper exercise. This is a fairly active breed and does require 3 walks per day, unless able to roam free in a fenced back yard for exercise.
Ownership
Help reduce the number of Cocker Spaniel puppies in shelters by doing your due diligence. Many puppies are often purchased with little or no knowledge of what goes into parenting one. Uneducated decisions often leave the puppy in need of adoption and in the care of rescue groups. Bringing home a puppy into your family has many benefits but we first implore you to educate yourself. An informed decision will take into account the characteristics of the breed, your lifestyle, expected veterinary care, the demands and limitations of owning one, their activity requirements and levels of companionship required.

Are most Cocker Spaniels "hunting dogs"? I'm wanting to get a buff cocker spaniel, but I do have 2 macaws, and 4 parakeets... I will be training the dog with a crate and taking it to classes... I just wanted to know if I should separate them or just find out another technique???

So, using a crate and positive reinforcement methods, you will be able to teach your new dog how to behave around your birds correctly. I suggest tethering your dog to you using a leash if your dog is not in a crate while you are in the house to start off. Contacting your local positive reinforcement trainer, they will give you the tools you need to teach your dog to be calm around the birds. However, you must understand that your birds will be more agitated for a while since they are not used to a dog in the home. Separation of the birds and dog is best for the first little bit until everyone is calm enough to work on training. Good luck!

If you have birds I would not get a bird dog. Cockers are bred to flush birds out of fields to be shot. I have had cockers most of my life and have taken care of parrots for friends when they were out of town. More than once the large cage was knocked over. I visited another friend who has a 35+ year old Parrot and she told me to keep my cocker away from the floor to ceiling cage because Roscoe would bite her. Do not get a bird dog if you have birds.

I had to put my 8 year old Cocker down due to seizures, how can I prevent this from happening again? My Cocker Spaniel has been having seizures for about 4 years (2-3 every 3 months) Yesterday she had about.

Cocker Spaniel's are known for seizure problems. Getting a puppy from a reputable breeder whom screens for seizure problems is the only way to find a puppy that has the best chance of not having seizure problems. Your vet now is the only one that can help, as he/she can give your dog medication for her seizures.

Difference between Cavalier King Charles Spaniel and Cocker Spaniel I was sold a cocker spaniel but when I received the puppy the papers show the dad and mom were ckcs?

Cavalier King Charles Spaniels are more eager to please and I think they are smaller in size.

Its true that the Cavalier Kings are smaller, and they are strictly lap dogs. Cocker Spaniels, not so much. They like to do things, such as sniff out prey, (they have a great nose) and are naturally good watch dogs. My male cocker will let me know when someone drives up, and the sound of his bark lets me know if he is familiar with my visitor or not. The Cavalier King may bark at a stranger, but he doesn't take his watchdog duties as seriously as the Cocker.

Your vet is the only one that can help you with this. I can be anything from a scar to a bacterial disease on the nose of your dog.

Try Benadryl and if it doesn't work, it is time for a vet visit.

Yes, cocker spaniels hunt game birds. They got their name from one that they hunt, the wood cock(COCKer spaniel).

I have a cocker spaniel who is all tan, could he be a sprocker? Can you get full colour sprockers?

It could be a sprocker. But did you know that a long time ago cockers and springers were the same breed?! Larger ones were springers, smaller one's were cockers.

Feed your cocker spaniel a food diet that helps him lose weight.

Two cups a day for a Cocker Spaniel is way too much, 1/2 cup twice a day is enough
